Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2013-137: Headlines: New Meaning for the Boob Tube

At church yesterday someone shared that the FCC is considering a change in their decency standards.  They are considering allowing the use of vulgarity, such as the “F” word, and something that is called “non-sexual” nudity.  They are in theory asking for comments.  I believe we have until the end of this month to send in how we feel about such a change.

I sometimes question the intelligence of people in government.  With the total loss of common courtesy we are seeing in our culture why would they want to throw gasoline on the fire by allowing more vulgarity?  And I am wondering what “non-sexual” nudity is.   I have understood that such a term is an oxymoron since I entered puberty.  I accept the fact that people my age and condition are not real sexy when you stand us naked under a light but I somehow doubt that is the type of picture they want to show.

Now is our chance to speak up.  To be honest, I don’t watch TV.  I thought they had already crossed this line.  I Googled and found a page on the American Family Association that gives the details on how to contact the FCC.

Remember to be courteous and not use the “F” word to express your honest opinion of their opinion. 

Please pardon the title.  I could not resist.

      Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
